Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Josh Creamer and Dustin Wimmer dominated the AMA ATV MX series on Sunday, making it the fifth race in a row in which both racers were on the podium. Creamer took the overall victory after impressive 1-1 moto finishes, overtaking the series point lead. Reigning 2009 AMA ATV MX Champion Dustin Wimmer rode to a second-place overall finish after racing his way to 3-2 moto finishes.
Creamer held the series lead going into the last race, Round 4, and wanted to take it back from his teammate Wimmer at Steel City. Creamer did just that by winning both motos and taking the overall. Creamer’s first moto start was not as good as he had wanted, coming out of the first turn in about 13th place. Creamer didn’t give up though, knowing they had plenty of time to make up ground and get to the front of the pack, which is exactly what they did. Creamer took his Makita tuned Suzuki R450 around 12 racers by the end of the first moto, claiming an amazing victory.
Wimmer started the race much the same as Creamer due to a bottleneck at the start that put him in 12th place. Wimmer worked his way through the pack to finish third in the first moto. Near the finish line on the last lap, Wimmer was hit with a large rock that was roosted up by another racer. The rock hit him in the kneecap but Wimmer was able to overtake the racer and finish in third.
The second moto start was a different story for Creamer. He came out of the gate in third place and quickly moved into second. Wimmer’s second moto start wasn’t as good as he had hoped, but in true champion fashion, was able to work his way around other racers and finish second behind his teammate.
Creamer is now leading the series with 219 points, three points ahead of Wimmer. Both of the Rockstar Makita Suzuki racers have finished on the podium at every round so far this year. Round 6 of the AMA ATV MX series will take place on June 12-13 at Spring Creek in Millville, Minnesota.
